Anyone passing away too soon is tragic. Anyone passing away too young is tragic. The son of 39 year old Shannon Stone will have a difficult climb ahead of him as he matures, all the while dealing with the memory of witnessing his father’s passing.
There is not one of us who doesn’t go to a baseball game, especially if you are a kid, hoping to catch a baseball in the stands. And if you are a parent bringing your son or daughter, you want to catch one for your child.
Shannon Stone reached for a ball tossed to him by Texas Ranger Josh Hamilton. He fell over the railing falling 20 feet to the concrete below and eventually passed away.
Passing away too soon and too young is tragic. My sympathy to his family, and particularly his son.
